Fifteen more families in Harare rejoiced as they were handed over houses as part of the R134,3 million Harare Infill housing project in Khayelitsha by the City of Cape Town.
This is the second part of Phase 2 of the housing project in Harare, making it to 195 homes that have been handed over in Phase 2.
However, the Harare infill housing project will provide opportunities to 900 qualifying beneficiaries, which includes 417 opportunities in Phase 1 and 483 homes in Phase 2.
“We celebrate with the latest beneficiaries of the Harare Infill housing project as we continue to provide opportunities to residents in this mega-project. We have been engaging with the community over recent months and we are committed to handing over many more homes in the coming weeks,” said Councillor Malusi Booi and senior officials in the Human Settlements Directorate.
Phase 1 will be completed by the end of November 2022 and Phase 2 will be completed in April 2023.
The Councillor, also touched on the unlawfulness of queue-jumping stating “many opportunities have been lost in Khayelitsha due to unlawful occupation and cannot allow this to continue. Queue-jumping for housing opportunities is unacceptable.”
Residents and communities are encouraged to support the City’s efforts to protect beneficiaries, community projects, and services by alerting the City of Cape Town to any attempts to occupy the land.
